Thank you to everyone who took the time to make a submission and help the Council plan for the social, cultural, environmental, and economic well-being of the Buller District. Council needs to make tough decisions, juggle competing priorities with limited resources, maintain focus on the ‘big picture’ and act for the good of the whole district. To achieve this complex task Councillors must have a clear direction from the community.
